“Gorgeous!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is one of my favourite walks and if you're up for it you can walk right up to the glacier and be daring and go inside of the caves, that's a tad nerve racking though.

“Best easy hike in the Canadian Rockies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Excellent mountain scenery. Usually you have to hike far to have these views. Go early - this place can become a zoo.

“BEAUTIFUL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

This is a must see. We loved the walk to the lake and glacier, it was a hot day, the views were breathtaking, the streams running down the mountain were very inviting, I had to soak my feet for a few minutes, it was so cold, what a way to get refreshed.

“Loved it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

I've seen glacier in Alaska, but this one was unique. I do wish I would have known that there were 2 trails leading to it and I would have taken the one without the inclines. The lake holds all the ice chunks and it is COLD!! Great place!

“Do not miss!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

The Angel Glacier (and the Ghost Glacier) are very beautiful, and so is the easy trail leading to them, and the steep road leading to the mountain.
Opens only in late June, and the upper trail only late July(!) – verify conditions in advance. In the afternoon you may hear the Ice cracking, and if you are lucky even to see parts of it breaking (be careful and stay on trails!).
